      What a great completion of the trilogy! This book, the last part of Foundation trilogy, was very captivating from the start and became even more interesting and enthralling leading to a great spellbinding climax. This trilogy has now entered to my all time favorite books. It has been a great experience reading Isaac Asimov.

      And so you take comfort in what once used to chafe and to frustrate: the man is smarter than you. Hari Seldon. At first you fought against his implacable logic, his elegant design mapping out the entire existence of your race, the human kind. But eventually you relaxed and embraced it: you and yours, your dreams, the human race your goals and your future would be protected, protected by the plan. The Seldon Plan - and Foundation. And when Foundation and the Plan both suffered at the hands of the [...]

      Second Foundation wraps up Asimov’s brilliant early 50s classic SF series Foundation.Twenty-nine years later (in 1982) Asimov would publish Foundation's Edge, but for most of the golden age, the Foundation trilogy would form a template (though never completely duplicated) for SF excellence. Essentially divided into two parts – the first part a conclusion of Foundation and Empire with The Mule and then the conclusion of the Foundation story. The search for the ultra-secretive Second Foundatio [...]

      The book alone, I probably would have rated 3 stars out of 5, but I just noticed I rated 3 stars also the first two books in the trilogy, which baffles me because when I think of the Foundation trilogy, I do not think 3 stars. It seemed appropriate, therefore, to up the average rating of the series with this last chapter.“Every human being lived behind an impenetrable wall of choking mist within which no other but he existed.”What I loved about this particular instalment, and a thing that is [...]

      This was a fabulous conclusion to the original trilogy!In the first book, we see the rise of the Foundation – the kernel of civilization around which the Second Galactic Empire will eventually rise after the fall of the First Galactic Empire… a foundation established for precisely that reason by the inestimable Hari Seldon, who – through his mathematics – can predict the future.In the second book, we see Seldon’s Plan shattered by the unexpected rise of a conqueror with mutant mental p [...]

      “Was his controlled mind so concerned with obedience as to lose initiative? He felt a thickening despondency drive him down into a strange lassitude.”Poor Captain Han Pritcher. Mind control is a common sci-fi trope but the feelings or thoughts of the person under control are rarely explored. This is what makes Part 1 of Second Foundation so special. As I mentioned in my review of Foundation and Empire The Mule is a terrific villain, clever and ruthless but no exactly evil and a little pitifu [...]

      This book concludes the original tale of the Foundation and it is a worthy ending.Like the second book, this had not several shorter stories forming a mosaic to introduce the reader to the galaxy as had the first, but had only two parts:- Search by the Mule- Search by the FoundationThe first part resumes the tale where it had left off at the end of the second book: the Mule is still ruling the galaxy after having beaten the Foundation and is more powerful than ever. He knows however that there i [...]

    8. Ian on said:

      The idea behind it's pretty good. Asimov has set up little philosopher kings to slowly shape the universe until they can accept being openly ruled by beings as superior as them, because of SCIENCE! It never actually handles the philosophical issues involved, but notes that they exist. Meanwhile, the plot is such: Man1: Haha! I tricked you!Man2: But I knew you were going to trick me. Instead, I tricked you!Man1: But I knew you knew that I was going to trick you, so really *I* win!Man2: NO! *dies* [...]

    9. Markus on said:

      Second Foundation is a decent enough conclusion to the original Foundation trilogy, although it was by far the weakest book in the trilogy in my eyes.The problem is that whereas the first book, despite its own flaws, is both intriguing and original, both the second and third volumes focus on deviation from, and restoration of, the psychohistorical master plan of Hari Seldon. The whole story of the Mule feels quite pointless and could be considered the weakest point of Asimov's ideas. Both the se [...]

    10. Bradley on said:

      I'm still amazed at how well this and the other two books in the trilogy holds up. It's easy to let little things go like all the focus on Atomic Reactors when they've still got FTL. We could replace one technology with another and still have the same core story shine.And it really shines.Yes, SF has had tons of telepathic SOBs, but I still count the Mule as one of the most savvy and intelligent dictators to ever topple a galactic empire. The first half of this book deals entirely with him and h [...]

      Like the other Foundation novels I have read this book (non GR or pre GR) many times since the wonderful fist reading in the 70s. Do I enjoy it every time ? Yes of course, otherwise I wouldn't re-read. Do I enjoy as much or more, hmm, difficult, in some ways no, its not new to me, but in some ways yes, because I get more every time, and I realise every time what an amazing author Asimov was.So I have just finished it for 2017 as part of the Foundation (7 book version) series read for SF Aficiona [...]

    12. Denisse on said:

      A book divided in two parts again, it can be read as two novellas instead of one book. I actually see it that way. A great conclusion with the fluent and smart writing the trilogy has had so far but a bit more focus on answers. Not as philosophical as the previews but far more dynamic. The trilogy in general is the perfect definition of well-plotted. Fast and interesting, perfectly exposed and detailed, intriguing and exciting. Second Foundation can be called an original ending even after all th [...]

      Intergalactic chess game - shall the Seldon Plan unravel, leaving the galaxy to savagery and digression or shall carefully laid undertakings based on probabilities save the galaxy from such a fate, and if so at what cost?This, the third of the series, was simply comprised of a better story than it's predecessors. It still had that intelligent tilt, but it also fleshed out the characters and concealed the twists in plot in a much more satisfactory way. This was a page turner and by the end I felt [...]

    14. Jamie on said:

      Isaac Asimov's Foundation series is often cited amongst the nerdegalian as the best sci-fi series evar. It's set, as you may guess, far into the future where a man discovers that Rome uh, I mean The Galactic Empire is fated to collapse and bring about 30,000 years of barbarism unless certain actions are taken to start a long chain of events, the first of which is to create a kind of galactic . I'm not normally a fan of hard science fiction, and reading this trilogy kind of reminds me of why.It a [...]

      A circle has no end and then the shape of the Galaxy is like a double spiral so did I know the answer? Hmm not a bad guess. But that doesn't change this to be as entertaining and witty an end to the Foundation Trilogy as promised. All three of the original trilogy are just as much creditable today as must have been when first published. I am always humbled by Asimov's talent and his scientific foresight amazed me once more in terms of the technology described in this series. I am also intrigue [...]

      4.5 Stars. Satisfying conclusion to one of the classic space opera trilogies in science fiction history. Asimov could really spin a good, fun yarn and populate it was great "larger than life" characters.

      Nothing truly surprising in this one by the end, but a delightful read nonetheless.

    20. Bryant Rudisill on said:

      Asimov has a linguistic prowess that is nearly untouchable - nearly. Not any skilled writer can project a copious amount of thought and ideals behind a few well-formulated sentences. Let alone have the innate ability to fabricate conundrums for the reader to so innocently and unwittingly plunge into around every other page. I figured myself top-notch, thinking I had discovered the hidden secrets behind the book; thinking I had discovered the ultimate truth behind the words of Harry Seldin and fo [...]

    21. Daniel Gonçalves on said:

      A prophet needs prescience and clairvoyance to accomplish his task, and Isaac Asimov possessed these qualities, because he was one. He did it by conveying the distant future to his followers. It was the Foundation series that made him famous and propelled his name into the annals of science fiction.In this third book, Asimov continues the quest for truth by delivering something unseen in the previous two iterations: consistency. His only major flaw as an author – not being able to utilize enga [...]

    22. Pterodactyl on said:

      Asimov pulled it off! The cliffhanger at the end of "Foundation and Empire" leads to a wonderful storyline full of mystery and intriguee in "Second Foundation." The Seldon Plan, which worked like a Deus Ex Machina in "Foundation," finally faces a serious threat. Not to mention, Asimov's writing has improved by leaps and bounds in this book, and the glaring exposition necessary at the beginning is handled with much more subtlety and believability. In "Foundation" and the first half of "Foundation [...]

    23. Nandakishore Varma on said:

      Asimov rounds off the trilogy in exemplary way. The Foundation, destroyed by the unpredictable variable in the statistical equation (in this case, the mutant Mule), is brought back into working order by the "Second Foundation", the secret 'Plan B' of Hari Seldon - rumoured to be located at the other end of the galaxy. It's a fine SF novel and an intriguing space mystery at the same time.

    24. Luke Devenish on said:

      Bliss me out, Bayta! The Second Foundation are controlling my mind! Well, they MUST be because I enjoyed this, the third of the Foundation space doddles, ONE WHOLE STAR MORE than the other two books that preceded it. Let's face it, I was certifiably paranoid BEFORE I picked up book number 3, but thanks to those cunning Second Foundationers and their ghastly galactic grip, I've gone starker raving bonkers than Ozzy Osbourne in receipt of a Final Notice gas bill. But there's a comfort in being min [...]

    25. Ricky Ganci on said:

      Dang—he got me again. Not so much that the Second Foundation was on Trantor (I figured it was close), but that Preen Palver was the First Speaker. And once again, my first reaction was “I gotta read these books again and catch all this hidden junk.” Because the realization, though less intense, was similar in its execution to the revelation of the Mule. The resolution of the plot was rather flat and uninteresting, but the idea behind it was cool—I guess it was just a conflict of executio [...]

    26. Tfitoby on said:

      A return to form if you can say that of a book containing stories apparently written before the disappointing book that precedes it. This was not an Earth shattering, life changing read but it was an enjoyable one nonetheless.Technically this was the end of the original trilogy but with two more novels left in the epic 15 book universe I feel that there's plenty of room for further exploration of ideas only hinted at so far and plenty of enthusiasm left in me for reading them. However the end of [...]

      Read in Portuguese. Awesome trilogy.These Asimov's books has earned a special place in the sci-fi genre and it's well deserved. It's a Masterpiece! But it is not for all kind of readers. It's "Like it or leave it!" kind of book. I don't recommend it for those people who like to read something quickly and full of action. To fully enjoy Foundation you need to read this book without today's perspective, I mean, it's been written in the 1950's, and inspired so many writers that the ideas about the f [...]

    28. Manny on said:

      It's so funny when SF writers, especially ones like Asimov who take themselves seriously, try to predict the future. This book contains one of my favorite examples of getting it completely wrong. We're God knows how many thousands of years on from now, they have faster-than-light travel and force fields and any number of other miraculous inventions, but what is the absolute latest, cutting-edge technology? Well it looks rather like Dragon Dictate, with a printer that produces cursive handwriting [...]

    29. Vicho on said:

      Me encantó! Las últimas palabras crear ese efecto del "orgasmo literario" en todo mi ser. Definitivamente esta saga no la leí como debí en mis épocas de escolar. Esta tercera entrega ofrece un giro distinto en la historia, con una niña como figura central, conspiradores, la misteriosa figura del primer orador y la gran interrogante de: ¿Dónde se ubica la Segunda Fundación? No le otorgo 5 puntos, pues sentí un tanto excesivo el uso de "eso fue lo que pensaste PERO NO ES ASÍ!". Un ciclo [...]

      As putea sa adaug o mulțime de cuvinte de apreciere însă tot ce pot să spun e că m-am îndrăgostit iremediabil de Asimov citindu-i cărțile și volumul acesta în special.
